This page has information about what your child learns during the middle years of schooling and how you can help your child do their best at school.

Curriculum

The Australian Curriculum forms the basis of teaching and learning in the middle years.

There is a strong focus on the social, emotional, physical and academic development of children.

The Australian Curriculum recognises that your child develops at different rates to others, has different learning needs, areas of interest and aspirations. The curriculum is used flexibly in schools to meet the educational needs of all students.

Go to the Australian Curriculum website to view the curriculum.
